Domeney Reserve

Domeney Reserve provides a range of community facilities including sporting oval, netball / basketball court, sports pavilion, community centre, playground, barbecues and picnic shelters. It plays an important role in the provision of informal recreation and cultural opportunities within its district catchment, including the annual event, Carols by Candlelight. The playground is next door to St Anne’s Primary School and accessibility for Park Orchard residents in general will be improved once the long term bicycle network is implemented.


Domeney Reserve playground provides a range of equipment suitable for children aged 2 to 8 years. Play opportunities include two slides, swing set, track glide, crawl tunnel, shop front and some climbing challenges. Invite some friends along and stay for barbecue under the picnic shelter in the playground. There is also a drink fountain.
